Following an extensive redevelopment Daydream Island resort now offers 280 refurbished modern rooms and suites with the choice of interconnecting rooms for families and special access rooms.

There is an expanded food and beverage offering across the island with three restaurants and three bars including an exciting new Asian Fusion restaurant which joins the buffet and modern Australian restaurants.

The Living Reef also makes its return to the island in an even bigger and better capacity than before, with the free form coral lagoon wrapping 200m around the central building and holding over 1.5 million litres of water. Join the team of marine biologists and over 100 species of marine fish, rays, coral and invertebrates such as starfish, sea cucumbers and crabs.

Daydream Island Resort’s event space will cater to major events and conferences, yet still provide a personal touch. Special events from cocktail parties to gala dinners can be catered for across a large range of indoor and outdoor event locations, with weddings continuing to play a part in the story of Daydream Island Resort.

Join the Daydreamer Club for exclusive benefits and offers.

Breathe in the magic of the island


Delightful views to wake up to

On an island as beautiful as Daydream, each of the 280 rooms and suites offers a delightful view from your Whitsundays accommodation to wake up to – across lush, tropical gardens or looking out to the impossibly blue waters of the Whitsundays.

Irresistible menus to celebrate life.

Tonic Bar

Spanning indoors from the Atrium out towards the Living Reef is Tonic Bar. As the Island’s specialty Gin Bar it’s great place to meet for a G&T before heading out to dinner or to stay and enjoy the atmosphere.


Where the views – and possibilities – are endless. Boasting an Asian Fusion menu that highlights the best of Queensland produce, a private Teppanyaki Suite, and expansive views of the Whitsunday Islands.


This modern buffet restaurant brings fresh local produce to you daily. Located just off the main lobby in the Atrium, Graze is open for breakfast and dinner.
